I am anticipating recieving my notification (wave 6) about 13 working days after US shipping begins. So, at this point, that is beginning to look like the first week of May. It will be fun to watch the ticker progress once US shipping begins. Semper Fi, and Drive ON, folks.

Currently inventorying all my miniatures to make sure there aren't any issues cropping up. If anyone would like a pic of a particular mini, I'll be happy to see what I can do.

Did you get the new Rauthuros? I have two of the prior mold (one Bones, one Pewter), but I'm just curious to see what he looks like in the updated size.

Mine arrived. Did a live stream at request of some buddies. I can sit in the box. Pros: I am impressed by the detail level. Bones material has come a LONG way. Cons: zombie shark missing lower jaw, and 1/2 of paint set is wrong set. Will know more soon. <back to wallowing> 

Second request for the video link:) As for the paints, I have actually heard this comment quite a bit:( Hope they get that resolved before US shipping begins and correct it for everyone else:) Really looking forward to BOTH paint sets:)

I think you're misreading some of what I wrote. I'm suggesting a "dedicated, full-time social media presence," the meaning there being staff of whatever necessary number that is only dedicated to social media. The "People from different departments come in" that you describe is what currently occurs in that different staff members pop onto social media from time to time to put up pictures or make comments. It is my fully unofficial understanding that their company policy is not to give answers to anything without official authorization, thus why you mostly get zero answers or non-answers. I think that you're ascribing actions to certain individuals when I'm talking about overall company decisions. These issues persisted before any prior employees left the company, it just wasn't as obvious because there was more of a presence here on the forum and in the kickstarter comments, but most information that was given was non-answers that at least made some people feel more like someone was listening, but didn't really address the overarching issues that I'm talking about.

Correct, I think I may have missed the part about the social media point of contact, apologies about that. So, I would think we both agree, reaper would be well served if they had a dedicated point of contact for information (a public relations person if you will). I do not think (the size of Reaper) they would need a whole team, one person JUST doing PR would suffice I think. It's not like Time Warner err I mean Spectrum large, so I think they'd be fine with a solo (or possible duo, to cover vacations and such).

I will check the haul and update you :)

 

I do hope things speed up soon so everyone may wallow in their heaps!

 

FB Miniature Painting and Mineralogy by Cyradis has it. On phone atm, links are hard. I might have a signature link. 

Going to grocery store for more baggies briefly and will return!

It would be good to get some kind of update to let us know what's going on, but I'm crossing my fingers that part of the delay is to fix some of the shipping issues that some Canadians seem to be having, with missing items and incorrect paint sets. An extra day or two delay now is fine if it increases the chances my order gets fulfilled correctly the first time. I just want to know what's happening.

To keep things on topic, if anyone has the Bones 4 Zombie Dragon and Ebonwrath, could I see them side by side? I'm wondering if my plan will work or if I'll need to scrap it...

Just reposting this here in case anyone who's offering to show pictures missed it the first time...

Dry fit. It is pretty good. Won't need much work to glue together. It is a softer plastic than Argent. More bendy. Still decently detailed.

Ebonwrath is... somewhere? He is Sir Cyr's. They are similar size. 

Ebonwrath I think has bigger wings.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
